Do you know the difference between pressurized air and 100% oxygen? Obviously not because if frefighters breathed 100% oxygen, they would die within
minutes. Fire or not. Compressed air is NOT oxygen.
That is another LOGICAL source of the "explosions".
No, it's not. It is a LOGICAL FALLACY of the source of explosions. Period. Take a SCUBA course if you don't believe me.
But to claim the explosions were the direct result of demo charges is ignorant and just plain stupid when considering all the stuff
buried/crushed/burning in the debris pile.
And claiming that it definately CAN'T be explosives is also ignorant and just plain stupid. No offense of course, unlike what you tried to make me
The whole point of a controlled demo is to have everything go at once. Not have random detonations 20-30 minutes or even hours earlier which
would only serve to destabilize the building and possibly have it collapse when you are least suspecting it uncontrolled and killing more
Are you a CD expert? Nor am I, but, I'd garantee I know a bit more about structural engineering,, dynamics, statics, calculus, etc., etc. than you.
Especially since IAM a structural engineer.
Here is smaller oxygen tank getting shot by a rifle:

Good for that. Ask any firefighter if they breath pure oxygen, and I can call them they are a farse.
We also breath hydrogen. Should I then compare a compressed air cylinder to a hydrogen bomb?
How about Nitrogen? That's in there too. Get my point yet?
